Chicago's Green Events Venue

Are kids allowed in the venue?
The kids in your family or of friends can be an important part of your event. We allow children that are 13 years old or younger, and walking, at a maximum of 10 kids. Mitzvah celebrations are an exception and we hire chaperones for events with more than 10 kids present.

What is your role during my celebration?
The Special Events team is always on site to assist with any facilities issues or requests: adjusting the thermostat, guiding load-in, answering phones, and pointing people in the right direction. Leading up to your event, we are happy to help with fun suggestions and recommendations too.

Can I place a hold on a date?
Yes, we can! Catalyst Ranch will temporarily hold your first choice date for up to two weeks. Holds are valid until another client calls interested in the same date. When conflicts arise, clients have 24 hour right of refusal.

Do you have a cancellation policy?
50% of the room rental fee is non-refundable. All subsequent payments made are non-refundable unless the space can be rebooked. If the date is rebooked for a lower amount, the difference is non-refundable. An event date can be moved to an alternate date within three (3) months of the original date.
